  • Description

    THIS HAS BEEN AN IMPORTANT WEEK FOR CANOEISTS. FOLLOWERS OF THIS, ONE OF THE MOST SPECTACULAR OF WATER SPORTS, HAVE BEEN FLOCKING TO THE RIVER LIESER IN AUSTRIA WHERE THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS HAVE BEEN HELD.

    CANOEISTS SAY THAT A RIDE THROUGH THE RAPIDS OF ANY RIVER IS AN EXHILARATING EXPERIENCE - BUT ON THE RIVER LIESER, ONE OF THE MOST TORTUOUS OF CANOE RUNS, THE COMPETITORS NEED ALL THE SKILL THEY CAN MUSTER TO GET AROUND THE HUGE BOULDERS. NOT ALL OF THEM MAKE IT - BUT THERE ARE PLENTY OF WILLING HELPERS ON HAND TO PULL THE BEDRAGGLED CANOEIST FROM THE WATER SHOULD HE COME TO GRIEF.

    LARGE CROWDS GATHERED ON THE BANKS TO WATCH THE EVENTS. SOME WERE SKILLED CANOEISTS THEMSELVES AND ABLE TO APPRECIATE THE DIFFICULTIES THE COMPETITORS FOUND THEMSELVES IN. BUT MOST CAME JUST TO WATCH AND ENJOY THE SPECTACLE...
